The facilities for separating the clay fractions from rocks and soils are located in room 310KH. These facilities include floor model Varifuge Centrifuge, bench top small centrifuges (Sorvall), house line for Deionized water, benchtop space for disaggregation and weighing, useful reagents for separations and removal of cements, water baths, acid storage, and chemical disposal waste streams. The K-Ar geochronology lab is located also in KH 310.
This laboratory has supported the work of one post-doctoral associate (A. Bechtel, 1997-1998), two doctoral students (Laura Zaunbrecher and Alfred Elser), numerous Masters student research, and bachelor degree research.
The research done in this lab has been supported by USDOE, NSF, PRF, USGS, and Battelle.
